Bicycling Heaven Franconia

Franconia’s network of bicycle trails takes you through beautiful nature and offers fabulous touring routes for families, and recreational as well as fast riders.

The absolutely most enjoyable way to enjoy Franconia is by bicycle: River loops, forests, and vineyards are breath-taking whether you are a fast or a leisure rider. Stop wherever you want or where an especially enticing locale beckons you to do so. Combine exercise, nature experiences and cultural exploration like nowhere else. A bicycle tour through the Franconian vacation regions delivers threefold: A stunning landscape, an amazing variety of inns and restaurants, and first-class service. Franconia offers bicycling bliss on star-rated bicycle routes (Allgemeiner Deutscher Fahrrad-Club), at certified bicycle-friendly inns, and with the support of many e-bike facilities.

The best part of bicycling in Franconia is the scenery that Mother Nature has to offer. Ten nature parks encompass almost half of the entire territory of Franconia – as in 15,000 km² of unspoiled nature in 16 distinctly different vacation regions. In-between there are historical cities and inviting towns that serve as ideal stops, mid-day or overnight. The mountain ranges offer challenging climbs to seasoned cyclists and great nature experiences for mountain bikers. The bike trails through picturesque river valleys are better suited for families and leisure riders.
